Job Description

The Research Analyst helps develop political materials that are used for advocacy and outreach purposes within the United Nations and in the community to achieve the current goals of our Civil Society Engagement from Home Project.

Research Analysts then work as part of a team to help present those materials at events in the UN and in the community and then help out with social media coverage.
